A crazy story to add to this topic.
A mate had a VH commondore once with a warmish 202 5spd manual setup and managed to roll the engine over in the bay when he slammed it into 3rd instead of 5th at about 140kms and she snapped the mounts (badly deteriated from complete lack of maintence under the hood) and he rolled with the clutch in for about 300-400 meters with the engine still running and it was all fine.
The rocker cover was touching the steering column and the sump was faceing the strut tower, smashed the radiator and bent the zorst and some heater hoses were torn but we straightened the mess out for him and he was thrashing it again in no time.

Point being is that no internal damage would have been done so i think that as long as the sump is in shape and isnt bucked in or any thing then she will be fine.
